Any fan of improvisational comedy has loved Whose Line Is It Anyway?, the ABC series hosted by Drew Carey, featuring comedians competing for meaningless points. According to Colin Mochrie, who frequently appeared on the show, a revival could be on the way.
Oh, by the way, Whose Line is coming back. More details later.

EW caught up with Mochrie’s manager, who said that the tweet was in response to a Wenatchee World story on Ryan Stiles, who starred on Carey’s Drew as well as Whose Line. The article claims that Whose Line will return on something called the “Warner Brothers channel” and will replace Carey with Aisha Tyler.
This statement is problematic, of course, because there is currently no Warner Brothers channel in existence. It’s possible that the report was referring to the CW, the network that resulted in the merger between WB and UPN. Previously, Whose Line aired on ABC from 1998-2004 and ABC Family from 2005-07.
Stiles, Tyler and Warner Bros. TV wouldn’t comment when contacted by EW and Carey’s rep said that the Price Is Right host hadn’t heard anything about a revival. Carey also hosts the Game Show Network’s Drew Carey’s Improv-A-Ganza, which has featured Stiles and Mochrie.
So, while it is unclear whether Whose Line will return, you can still enjoy some classic episodes like this one:
UPDATE: In a statement posted at Deadline, The CW confirmed that the show is coming back. The series will air during the summer.
